The art fair is going down from May 8th -11th at The Metropolitan Pavilion with new Fair Director Helen Toomer who has helped change the look, feel, and overall energy of the fair.

Currently, over seventy five percent of exhibitors will present solo, two or three artist presentations, which are integrated throughout the fair as PULSE, IMPULSE, and POINTS exhibitors, thereby encouraging connectivity between artworks, galleries and visitors and emphasizing the fair as a platform for discovery.

Since 2005, PULSE Contemporary Art Fair has created a community for international galleries to grow within the contemporary art market. PULSE has been a valuable resource to acquire significant works of art, while discovering pioneering and seasoned artists. For nearly 10 years, PULSE has combined thoughtfully curated exhibitions with an evolving series of programming, which reflects the fair’s commitment to the visitors’ experience.
